Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


Labor force increase is biggest since 2003, says CNBC, as many Americans finally get back to work.

·        The labor force surged by 806,000, the biggest move since September 2003, and now sits just below 162 million.

·        Those counted outside the labor force declined by 653,00, though they still number 95 million.

·        The participation trend could be indicative that wages actually are coming up enough to encourage sidelined workers.

The labor data makes a nice book end to the under 1 minute video report from earlier today, linked below.
